I had hospital diagnosed hfMd. They prescribed only paracetamol and a throat spray which I had no time to buy as I could not get to a pharmacy.

Instead I took aspirin twice a day for its supposed anti viral effect. On the second night I took an antihistamine and I woke up feeling fine after feeling awful the day before. They say it takes 5 to 7 days to clear up so

Apparently you can cause Reyes syndrome giving aspirin to kids so this is a suggestion for adult hfmd.

Manuka honey sounds like a very smart choice to me.

If I were you, I think I might also try iodine or, to reduce its harshness, iodine mixed with coconut oil. (You can experiment with the dilution.) And if you don't mind smelling like a pizzeria, there's also oil of oregano or oil of oregano mixed with coconut oil.

One more option... Keeping it wrapped in something soaked with colloidal (actually ionic) silver. However, be aware that colloidal silver stains. And if there's a way to remove its stains, I don't know what it is. (I would also drink it.) To make it affordable, I would get a good colloidal silver generator. For the money, my favorite is the least expensive one from SilverGen.

Thank you so much to all who provided details where to get H202 in the UK. You have been so helpful. I have tried for months to get a bottle as I use this also for my plants and gardening. Amazon uk used to sell but now they don't, available in 3% to 12% only. Our world today need people like you. Thank you.

My thinking is that the antibiotics wiped out your natural microbiota (microorganisms/bacteria in your gut, vagina, and on skin mostly) which is a huge part of your immune system. Then you took some sort of an antifungal to kill the yeast off. You threw your whole system out of whack. Sometimes it is necessary to take antibiotics, but they should be a last resort. Always take probiotics when taking antibiotics to replenish your microbiota. All sorts of terrible things can happen after taking antibiotics. This is an emerging field--one we know very little about. They now think that autoimmune diseases are the result of a disrupted microbiota and their cure may be in balancing out the microbiota.

Question - why are we cooking the fresh garlic juice, lemon juice, ginger, apple cider down to 8 oz. Personally doesn't make any sense, I believe it would be more powerful with the juice extracted and taking 8 tablespoons of the original mixture. When you boil/simmer you are destroying all the natural vitamins, vitamin C and flavonoids are gone. All enzymes are destroyed, the sulphur and the allicin in the garlic? Ginger? Apple cider vinegar?

By juicing we have separated the nutrients out from the pulp excellent! The only thing we are possibly doing in the concentration in concentrating the minerals. If you think we are making a 4 -1 concentration I believe we are wrong, 4-1 concentration means that exact nutritional profile would be the same as the 4 in the1. This I can guarantee is not happening, so many of these nutrients are going to get destroyed by the heat, that's a FACT.

Herbal Companies make extract of ginger, garlic, etc, by first soaking the herb in alcohol or water for a period of time, and then pressing the ingredients out of the herb, some use over 1 million pounds of pressure to make the concentrate. NO HEATING! STORY - Man gets married see his wife cutting the ends off of the pot roast, he asks his wife, why are you cutting the ends off the pot roast? She says with a strong voice, that's the way my mother did it ask her. So the next time the family is together at the holidays he asks his new mother in law why do you cut off the ends of the pot roast? Mother in law say snaps, I don't know ask my mother, so he goes over to the grandmother and tells the story to the grandmother and she laughs and says, the reason I cut off the ends of the pot roast is because I didn't have a pan big enough to cook it in. I think the ingredients will help clean up the arteries and blood pressure, I believe it would be better formula without cooking and consuming 8 tablespoons of the extracted juice. Linus Pauling had Dr Rath spend 15 years researching why people get heart disease, and his answer was Heart Disease is really scurvy of the heart! Vitamin C deficiency, you body can not make 1 drop of vitamin C, we no longer have in our body's the enzyme to make vitamin C, the animal kingdom doesn't get heart disease/strokes because they can make their own vitamin C, a 65 lb goat can make 10,000 mg of vitamin C a day, put that goat under stress and he can make over 100,000 mg. Yo and I can't make a drop. Sharks don't get cancer, sharks product over 400,000 mg of vitamin C, in fact if you did a tissue sample of a shark you can't tell the age from a young shark or an old shark, Incrediable! Cooking the Lemon juice has destroyed the vitamin C. What is left I don't have the time/money to have the concentrate analyzed.

QUESTION IS WHAT AM I missing in the cooking of these ingredients???????

Collard Greens for Heavy Menstruations

My doctor told me to take vitamin K to stop the heavy bleeding during menstruating. I researched foods that have a high content of it in it. I tried collard greens. They also have several other good vitamins too. After eating 1/4 cup about three times a day. I noticed l was not having to change so often or set my alarm clock at night to prevent an accident. I learned to cook them myself for taste and controlling the amount of sodium. Better than canned for me because the heavy sodium gives me cramps on my heaviest day. A true miracle for me. Fresh collard greens works better for me than the vitamin K pills.

ACV pops out gallstones- I have read other comments on it causing constipation, and that might be from freeing up gallstones (which can cause diarrhea), and the GERD symptoms definitely can be a sign of gallstones.

Amen to all of the above. Coffee enemas are fantastic for the liver. Milk thistle is supposed to both protect the liver and accelerate liver regrowth. Turmeric is supposed to detoxify the liver (and do a myriad of other things). And castor oil packs work to draw poisons out of the liver.

A couple of other suggestions... Bentonite clay packs on the liver. And do everything you can to minimize additional burdens on his liver from environmental toxins by at least temporarily eliminating meat and dairy, eating organic, avoiding canned food and plastic containers, and getting a good shower filter and a good air filter.

Hi Gail, If you don't feel weight in it, it may be bad vapors or thick gas, the symptom of it is to feel its volume and pain but can not be seen in X ray, the best thing to cure this is to drink carminative herbs especially Ruta and cummin.

Biotin for Sinusitis

After a 7 year miserable and frustrating battle with sinusitis, my sinuses are now finally, miraculously clear!! My cure is BIOTIN! I was taking it for something else, and as a wonderful side effect, it completely cleared my sinuses! Other supplements have helped here and there, but nothing like the astounding results of Biotin!

I am currently taking 20,000 mcg. The holistic doctor I see puts people on dosages much higher than that for various health issues, so I don't think a high dose is a problem. It took about 3 days for the Biotin to completely clear up my sinuses. If you suffer from this, eliminating wheat & dairy (from a cow - goat is ok) will definitely help, too!

  Re: Colloidal Silver Nanoparticles for a Cold

Yes, I find the ultrasonic humidifier quite effective and more than capable of delivering an effective dose in just minutes. The oral method is great for going after blood born pathogens, but colloidal silver needs to come into contact or "very close proximity" to pathogens in order to be effective so oral intake is not likely to be very effective for many respiratory issues, but it may be helpful in some cases where pathogens are increasing beyond the respiratory system in which case both methods applied at the same time may be a better option. One problem with an ultrasonic device is that it can cause CS to agglomerate so only small amounts at a time may be a useful thing to do and throw out whatever isn't used.

For people who are using antibiotics, but are having minimal effect or the effects are diminishing, there are quite a few studies suggesting that CS may have synergy with certain broad spectrum antibiotics and in some cases may reverse "resistance" that has developed to a specific antibiotic. Here is a link to an abstract of this type of study:

Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces. 2016 Jun 1;142:392-9. doi: 10.1016/j.colsurfb.2016.03.007. Epub 2016 Mar 4.

Silver nanoparticles strongly enhance and restore bactericidal activity of inactive antibiotics against multiresistant Enterobacteriaceae.

Bacterial resistance to conventional antibiotics is currently one of the most important healthcare issues, and has serious negative impacts on medical practice. This study presents a potential solution to this problem, using the strong synergistic effects of antibiotics combined with silver nanoparticles (NPs). Silver NPs inhibit bacterial growth via a multilevel mode of antibacterial action at concentrations ranging from a few ppm to tens of ppm. Silver NPs strongly enhanced antibacterial activity against multiresistant, β-lactamase and carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae when combined with the following antibiotics: cefotaxime, ceftazidime, meropenem, ciprofloxacin and gentamicin. All the antibiotics, when combined with silver NPs, showed enhanced antibacterial activity at concentrations far below the minimum inhibitory concentrations (tenths to hundredths of one ppm) of individual antibiotics and silver NPs. The enhanced activity of antibiotics combined with silver NPs, especially meropenem, was weaker against non-resistant bacteria than against resistant bacteria. The double disk synergy test showed that bacteria produced no β-lactamase when treated with antibiotics combined with silver NPs. Low silver concentrations were required for effective enhancement of antibacterial activity against multiresistant bacteria. These low silver concentrations showed no cytotoxic effect towards mammalian cells, an important feature for potential medical applications.

The following abstract suggests that similar synergistic effects are likely in animals as well:

Author information


Antibiotic resistant bacteria are a serious health risk in both human and veterinary medicine. Several studies have shown that silvernanoparticles (AgNPs) exert a high level of antibacterial activity against antibiotic resistant strains in humans. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antibacterial effects of a combined therapy of AgNPs and antibiotics against veterinary bacteria that show resistance to antibiotics. A microdilution checkerboard method was used to determine the minimal inhibitory concentrations of both types of antimicrobials, alone and in combination. The fractional inhibitory concentration index was calculated and used to classify observed collective antibacterial activity as synergistic, additive (only the sum of separate effects of drugs), indifferent (no effect) or antagonistic. From the 40 performed tests, seven were synergistic, 17 additive and 16 indifferent. None of the tested combinations showed an antagonistic effect. The majority of synergistic effects were observed for combinations of AgNPs given together with gentamicin, but the highest enhancement of antibacterial activity was found with combined therapy together with penicillin G against Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae. A. pleuropneumoniae and Pasteurella multocida originally resistant to amoxycillin, gentamicin and colistin were sensitive to these antibiotics when combined with AgNPs. The study shows that AgNPs have potential as adjuvants for the treatment of animal bacterial diseases.

I am curious as to what type of colloidal silver you are using and if you are making it or buying it? What color if any could you compare it to? Is the CS crystal clear even if it has color? How many parts per million is it? Is it capped?

Thank you!
